Sorry friends, search bar didn't help neither did the FAQ, but I have to know, where are the save files? I want to get my world 2 from my mac to my brand spankin' new PC with epic GPU. How would I go about doing this?

Also, do the files readily open across the OS's?

So you say 1.4 is fail because you don't know how to update your server? WTF

Thats like saying all cars fail because you don't know how to put gas in them.

It is also useful to know that it is a hidden folder, you can view hidden folders by
going into My Computer, then at the top is "Tools", then "Folder Options"
then in the popup, go to View then "Hidden files and Folders"

Too bad mac doesn't have "C" drive. Its called HDD I hope you know that.
The key phrase was "from my mac" not from my PC, I hope people read carefully next time.

Either

/Users/Your User Name Here/Library/Application Data/minecraft/saves

or

/Users/Your User Name Here/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves

They work perfectly across operating systems.

Thank you so much Dthen! Now its just going to have to be hope that it works cross platform. I hadn't seen the answer yet 251. Its insulting to say that before I even read the most recent answer. I don't thank people who are wrong though if that is what you wanted.

Are you using Mac? If so I have no idea, never used a mac.

But if you're using Windows XP or Vista, then you can also try looking under "C:/Documents and Settings//Application Data/.minecraft" (or something very close to that).

You know I've tried even copying and pasting the command line into Spotlight, and I can't find my save files anywhere :D Any other directories they might be saved under?

You're sure it's not in either:
/Users/Your User Name Here/Library/Application Data/minecraft/
or
/Users/Your User Name Here/Library/Application Support/minecraft/

Are you sure they don't exist?
